I tried a pipe cutter the first few pipes. It will take you forever. In the time it takes to cut ONE pipe with a pipe cutter, I can rip through at least TEN pipes with my jigsaw. It's not nearly as loud as a chopsaw.

If you do it that way you really need to make a jig to line things up tot he right dimension.

Also, once it's built, set it up at home a few times and figure out your covering. Not the sort of this you want to do for the first time in a 30mph whiteout duststorm.
